Japanese reporter sues government after passport is invalidated

A Japanese journalist has sued the Foreign Ministry after it invalidated his passport and demanded he surrender it. Kosuke Tuneoka was stopped at Tokyo’s airport in February on his way to Yemen for reporting. Tsuneoka said he filed a lawsuit to stop the government from taking similar steps against others. He alleges the move deprives him of his right to travel and interferes with press freedom.
